Happy Clients

  • Alex is an outstanding agent. We worked together for 2.5 years in search of just the right home for me and my daughters. Over that time, Alex showed me dozens of homes and helped me put in several strong offers in a very competitive neighborhood and market. Alex provided the perfect balance in an agent -- he was responsive to my needs and respectful of my decisions as a buyer and aggressive in representing me to the sellers agent, always adeptly managing to get my offers to rise to the top. This home buying journey was well played and well worth the wait. This week I received the keys to my forever home. I couldn't be happier. Thank you Alex!

  • Alex is fabulous. He's super knowledgeable, personable, completely reliable, responsive, honest, thorough and on your side. Also very smart. He's the guy you want. I found him through a web search while living in Seattle and working on a relocation to SF. Stumbled onto his blog and figured that the person writing that blog was the person we wanted on our case to find our house for us. Turns out it was an excellent plan. My husband and I both love him and 4 years later still love our house. SF is an insane real estate market and Alex knows it like the back of his hand and knows how to play the game. And win! He might even turn you onto a little gem of a neighborhood you've never heard of before, like he did for my cousin. Great, talented guy, has a really lovely family, and is tops at what he does. Recommend him 100%.

  • Without Alex, I don’t think I would have gotten my home. After several months of looking, multiple offers, and no success, a friend brought up Alex’s name as he specializes in pocket listings. It was apparent the day I met him that he would work hard for me and be more engaged in my search for a home. In a competitive market, Alex made sure that even if my offer wasn’t accepted, there was still an opportunity to get that home. After a year of searching, I purchased a condo that is basically everything I wanted and I am extremely happy.

  • Alex knows the San Francisco market very well. This helped us, as sellers, to understand what different buyers value and what to expect. He is also adaptable and efficient. Our sale was the first resale in a new condominium, but Alex did not let that slow things down. He successfully navigated the administrative overhead of the situation. In addition, when we sold our home, privacy was of absolute importance. To meet our needs, Alex came up with an agent-first marketing approach that leveraged his pocket listings network (PocketListings.net). He also used social media (Facebook, Twitter, theFrontSteps.com Blog) to get the word out before and after our open house. In under a month from initial contact, even over the seasonally slow Christmas holiday, Alex obtained multiple offers for us. He then helped us identify the most suitable buyer, which ensured us a fair price and a smooth close. We would highly recommend working with Alex for anything real estate in San Francisco.

  • Alex is an outstanding broker and an unparalleled ally in the super competitive world of SF real estate. He has an extraordinary knowledge of San Francisco real estate and uses it to the maximum benefit of his clients. He is personal, thoughtful and engaging with clients - he worked really hard to understand what we wanted to to help us find it. He is responsive and diligent - available whenever you need him and he gets the job done. Alex was so helpful to us when we moved to SF from New York - he helped us understand the landscape and then find and buy exactly what we wanted. We could not have asked for more and it does not get better.
